Stop what you're doing and make Rachel Parcell's Valentine's Day sugar cookie recipe. Yes, you heard me. I used the V-word, but let's put that aside for a moment and just focus on these extremely delicious cookies. We’re still in the middle of a pandemic, it is literally always a good idea to talk about cookies. In this case, I’m speaking specifically about the best sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting that I've honestly ever had. This sugar cookie recipe results in thick, soft cookies (with an extra boost of flavor from almond extract) topped with a generous layer of Barefoot Contessa's cream cheese frosting (which I can and do also just eat with a spoon). Make sure to read her baking notes so that yours come out as beautifully as hers!
